The Punjab unit of the Shiv Sena on Wednesday announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh for anyone slapping actor Aamir Khan over his recent remarks on “intolerance”. The actor has found himself under fire over his recent remarks.
The announcement was made during the Sena’s protest outside hotel MBD Radisson Blu in Ludhiana where Aamir is camping for the shooting of his upcoming film, ‘Dangal’.
During the protest, Shiv Sena workers allegedly used derogatory language against the actor and burnt his photographs.
Rajeev Tandon, Punjab chairman of the Shiv Sena was quoted as saying, “We give an opportunity to the manager and employees of the hotel and also the team of his film to slap Aamir and get Rs 1 lakh from us
Soon after Shiv Sena made the announcement, the security of the PK actor, who is shooting in the city for ‘Dangal’, has been stepped up.
The hotel management was a harried lot on Wednesday, as the Shiv Sena workers blocked traffic in front of the hotel and raised slogans against Aamir.
The hotel employees have also been told to remain extra vigilant to avoid any suspicious person reaching near Aamir’s room.
